How We Do It

Research shows that sports medicine is completely safe and effective for treating children. Our initial pediatric sports medicine evaluation includes functional movement screening with additional sports specific biomechanics analysis to address deficits in range of motion, muscle strength and flexibility and proper form. Our clinical training and experience with athletes make us the best resource as the first choice for your child’s injury evaluation and treatment. We also emphasize prevention for sports injuries as well as recovery/performance care to ensure they are prepared to compete at their best for any big game or tournament.

What Makes Us Different

Our advanced techniques and state-of-the-art technology promote faster recovery and pain reduction to allow the athlete to continue training/practice and competition whenever possible. All pediatric sports medicine treatments are combined with corrective exercise prescription to speed up improvement and prevent future re-occurrence of injury.

Conditions We Treat

Whatever your condition may be, our sports medicine doctor handles a wide array of prevention, maintenance and injury needs. An additional area of specialty is with post concussion injuries. Sports chiropractic care in the weeks following a concussion injury can reduce symptoms and speed up the return to play, however initial evaluation and continued monitoring by a medical doctor is always required.
